In the next few days Rebel Up! will be at the Womex world music expo in Cardiff, Wales. We are participating with a stand as part of the Global Club Music Network, a network of global music dj’s and producers (such as Kosta Kostov, Chief Boima. Post World Industries, Wormfood, Urbanworld and several others), to spread the positive and hipshaking message of new and inventive global and electronic music. Should you be there, you can find us in the main Motorpoint arena at stand no. 215 and during thursday and friday you can come and listen to our silent disco dj sets!
Also on Friday afternoon we will present a GCMN network session in Network Room 2 at 15:00, to talk and discuss world music in the club context with international collaboration, exchanging music, sharing idea’s and setting up a touring circuit, so come along if you want to participate!
Besides the day time fair there will be many musical showcases and for the first time even a DJ summit on 2 nights! See here for more info and check the Womex site for the full schedule and programme.
Specially for the Belgium Music stand we made a mixtape filled with contemporary Belgian world music released in 2013 or a bit before. Everything from world hybrids such as jazz, rock, pop, roots, urban, electronic and experimental spheres. Listen to it here and it’s up for download as well!
